Hampton Roads Daily Press
June 1, 2004
Some of the battles in democracy's continuing war against
autocratic thinking take place in unexpected corners, and
some of the heroes come from unexpected ranks.
That was the case when the state's archives, normally a
peaceful, quiet place, turned into a battleground for a conflict
that dragged on for most of 2002; the fight may not have
grabbed much attention, but it was significant. It involved the
librarian of Virginia, Nolan Yelich, going toe to toe with former
Gov. Jim Gilmore, who was refusing to hand over to the
archives many of the records of his administration.

COMMENTARY
Nominee Suffers for His 'Heresy' -- Exposing a Darling of the Left
By Jacob Heilbrunn
It's no secret that the Bush administration has a fetish for
secrecy. Whether it's keeping the records of Vice President
Dick Cheney's energy task force concealed or denying the
9/11 commission key documents, the administration
regularly displays disdain for open government. But does
that contempt extend even to the office of the national
archivist?
The left apparently believes it does, and that's why
President Bush's nomination of Allen Weinstein _ author of
the definitive biography of Alger Hiss, "Perjury" _ for the
post of national archivist has triggered a furor. "The
American people need a better custodian of their history,"
the Nation magazine editorialized. The Society of
American Archivists and the Organization of American
Historians are questioning Weinstein's credentials.
American University historian Anna K. Nelson told the
Washington Post, "This is pretty sneaky."

The Howard County Circuit Court in Ellicott City has alleviated some of its
severe crowding by adding 5,200 square feet - in Columbia.
Starting today, nonjudicial functions of the court, including land records,
marriage licenses and business licenses, will be housed at the county-owned
Thomas Dorsey Building, off Bendix Road.
The new office will include cashiers to handle licenses and title filings, scanning
and indexing departments to manage records and a public area with computer
terminals for document searches.

E-Document Management: A Litigator Looks at Retention Policies
Advice by Steven C. Bennett
JUNE 01, 2004
(COMPUTERWORLD) - For IT
professionals, top management and their
lawyers, the explosion in awareness and
use of electronic documents in litigation
presents great challenges.
For example, the widespread use of
business e-mail has often required the
revamping of document retention policies
and the dedication of substantial
resources to ensure that the enormous
volume of electronic communication is
properly treated from the perspective of
regulatory and litigation preparedness.

Trumping Tape
Outlook: Massive arrays of idle disks are giving a boost to disk-based backup systems, which could
replace tape libraries for some applications.
Emerging Technology by Lucas Mearian
MAY 24, 2004
(COMPUTERWORLD) - In the ongoing
struggle to automate and speed data
backups and restores, storage
administrators are increasingly turning to
Advanced Technology Attachment disk
subsystems. Now two vendors are
pitching the idea of using specialized
ATA disk backup appliances as an
alternative to robotic tape autoloaders for
handling large volumes of archival
storage. Both are using specialized ATA
disk array technology to lower the cost
per gigabyte of disk-based storage and
extend the life of backup disk drives,
making them more attractive for archival
and near-line storage.

Spreadsheet Overload?
Spreadsheets are growing like weeds, but they may be a liability in the Sarbanes-Oxley era.
News Story by Alan S. Horowitz
MAY 24, 2004
(COMPUTERWORLD) - In the
beginning, there was VisiCalc, the first
killer app for the PC. Lotus 1-2-3
subsequently took over, before yielding
the throne to Microsoft Corp.'s Excel.
Today, spreadsheets are so easy to use
and ubiquitous that they've sprouted like
weeds throughout most companies. And
they often hold important financial data.

New York Post
BLAST FROM THE PAST
By PHILIP MESSING
June 1, 2004 -- A forgotten 52-year-old investigative file that details the
biggest murder probe ever conducted by the NYPD has recently been found
inside a tiny Brooklyn station house, The Post has learned.
The glimpse into the city's most infamous unsolved homicide was made by
cops in Borough Park's 66th Precinct - headquartered in the smallest of the
76 station houses in the city.
The treasure trove of documents detailed the intricate steps taken by more
than 300 detectives to crack the March 8, 1952, assassination of Arnold
Schuster, a 24-year-old Borough Park clothing salesman who fingered
fugitive bank robber Willie Sutton.

NASA extends media archive deadline
BY Sarita Chourey
May 28, 2004
NASA's effort to put more than 115,000 film and video titles and millions of still images
online for public viewing has hit a slight delay, but the agency says that won't affect the
project's rollout.
NASA wants a contractor to create a digital archive that would make all of the agency's
video and still images available online and replace the agency's various disconnected
archives. However, NASA officials recently pushed back the deadline for proposals to June
25, three weeks later than the original target date.
